Benefits of PlayRailway Pals™ toys aren't just designed to be educational, they're designed to be fun! The cheeky, playful sounds, songs and phrases will keep children engaged with character-driven content that's unlike any other, and totally unique to Thomas & Friends™. Of course, it's great to know that while children are playing and using their imaginations, these adorable characters are also teaching them about letters, numbers, colours and directions.

Plus, as toddlers press Percy's light-up bumper, explore the activation points, spin the drum on Tidmouth Sheds, load and unload cargo, and use the turntable to change Percy's direction, it can encourage thinking skills and understanding of cause and effect. And when children use their imaginations to create stories and adventures for Percy, it can also foster a positive emotional connection that can last throughout their childhood – and sometimes even longer.
